PRC Actively Participates at 10th AAPCCM in Thailand

BANGKOK, THAILAND - The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) successfully participated in the 10th APEC Architect Project Central Council Meeting (AAPCCM) held in Bangkok, Thailand from April 27 to 29, 2023. As the agency lead of the delegation for the Philippines and the APEC Architect Monitoring Committee of the Philippines (AAMCOP), PRC Chairperson Honorable Charito A. Zamora attended, led, presented, and commented on behalf of the Philippines during the 10th AAPCCM. Hon. Zamora was joined by the Professional Regulatory Board (PRB) of Architecture, the International Affairs Office (IAO), and the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP), as represented by former PRC Commissioner Ar. Yolanda D. Reyes. The attendance and participation of the AAMCOP brought the participation of the Philippines an efficient and facilitative turnover to Thailand, as supported by the reports of Thailand.

During the meeting, the Philippines was featured on several agenda and encouraged the economies to link the APEC Central Council website to their respective domestic websites as part of their promotional strategies for the APEC Architect Register.  PRB of Architecture Chair Robert S. Sac reported during the discussion that the law allows foreign APEC architects to practice in the Philippines through the Special Temporary Permit and Special Permit, subject to the reciprocity requirements.  This clarification was welcomed by APEC Member Economies, such as Canada, as a possible avenue for bilateral talks. Meanwhile, the transfer of the APEC Architects Website from the Philippines to Thailand was facilitated.  It was announced that the management of the APEC Architects Website shall be transferred from the Philippines to Thailand.  This was with the Chairperson of the Thailand APEC Architect Monitoring Committee formally accepting documents from the Philippines in recognition of their contributions to the website.

Although no new bilateral or multilateral arrangements had been entered into by the participating economies since the last Central Council meeting, the side meetings in Thailand with the United States of America, China, and Canada have promised fruitful next steps for the Philippines. The Philippines, through the AAMCOP, became the Chairperson and Secretariat of the 9th AAPCCM, held virtually in 2021, and was subsequently turned over to Thailand in 2022.
